Gambian striker Bubacarr ‘steve’ Trawally has explained reasons that led to his
move to Saudi Arabia from Europe. He was negotiating to sign for Danish giant
club FC Midtjylland in January, which collapsed.
Trawally, a former Vejle FC product who never played a single match for the team, said during the summer window, he was not given the opportunity to play in Europe as negotiation with FC Midtjylland broke down.
He was playing for Vejle Boldklub when they bought him from Chinese club Yanbian Funde and was later loaned in January to another Chinese club Guizhou Hengfeng before being finally sold to Al-Shabab in Saudi Arabia.
According to him, there was an opportunity to stay in the Danish football but negotiations with Vejle fall along the way. “During my time in Denmark, I met with some people from FC Midtjylland and they showed a lot of interest in me. I asked Bubacarr Sanneh “Timber” about the club and he said positive things about them,” he said, and added, “I had a good conversation with them, but unfortunately it did not succeed.”
The prolific player said it wasn’t him who should get the deal done but it was the conversation between the clubs (Vejle and FC Midtjylland) that failed.
